Trinidad & Tobago have long been a bone of contention between the former powers France, Spain and England. On Tobago England and France fought a long time for supremacy and in Trinidad there were Spain and England. In Tobago, there is no more a official rum distillery in existence. Towards the end of the 19th century there were two left, but they disappeared unceremoniously. In Trinidad, there were even around the turn of the last millennium also only two official distilleries remaining. There was the Trinidad Distillers Limited (Angostura) and the state-owned Caroni Distillery. Caroni was closed due to a government decision in 2003 (but the business ceased already in 2002). So only Angostura remains as the last bastion of rum on the islands of Trinidad & Tobago.

Rums from the Caroni Distillery tasted like a cross between the old style of the former British colonies with medium or heavy bodies and the light flowery Spanish style. He had a slightly "dirty" taste of tar. Caroni embodied quasi the liquid result of the story of the struggle of the island of Trinidad between England and Spain and united both styles within itself. Trinidad Distillers Limited (Angostura), however, only produces the light and modern Spanish style and has a 7-column still that actually looks like an industrial plant and not like a charming rum distillery equipped with pot still or 2-column stills of the Coffey apparatus. The Caribbean lost with the Caroni Distillery another historic distillery and rum a piece of its great diversity.

But more on this in an article published in the future on the distilleries to Trinidad & Tobago.
